My Homepage


Welcome to my homepage featuring information on my family history and other interests. We reside in the central part of Maryland, grew up in Ohio, and my roots are primarily in Virginia and West Virginia.

Back in the summer of 1864 my great-great-great grandfather invaded this state as part of a Confederate army seeking to capture Washington. They might have accomplished that except for being slowed down at the Battle of Monocacy fought near Frederick, Maryland. He was part of the 37th Virginia Cavalry. As if he didn t get enough of Maryland on this trip, he came back after being captured and spent a year at Point Lookout prison camp which is located at the mouth of the Potomac River. See links below.

One of our pastimes is getting away from all the civilization that is here even on the edge of the Baltimore metro area. We generally escape to the west to higher ground. Located to the west are lots of places we have camped at and visited, and now we often ride our mountain bikes in these places on the rail trails.

As you can tell its been too long since I have updated this site. I am just getting back to it now, including updating my genealogy information posted. I have met many wonderful folk via the web and shared lots of info. So I will be glad to hear from you if we have any lines in common.
